YAY!
Photoshoot with my new part, all assembled...





But why is it yellow?
Damn you lights and living in a basement!!!!Outside we must go!!!



Ah HA! a thousand times better.





The material is plexi like the rest of the parts, with countersunk holes for mounting the everything together, which in total is about 20 peices :D





The part that excites me the most is the fact that this will make the interior so much more clean then ever before, and will ensure the sleeve lines up perfectly for that crisp curve :D

Here is a little teaser, to hold you all over.
I just got back from the 'Rise of the Dark Knight' Premiere, (one of the companies i work with in advertising is WB the studio who produced the batman film)
I wont spoil anything, but the film is amazing.

Oh right, the teaser:

Alright,
So I promised an update... so this is going to be a big one.

The day started off like any other. I looked at the case with distant but also with the though that... i need to do this thing justice.




But something is off.... i think the white balance..
hm,



Ah! i think thats a little bit better?

So lets drain the loop!!!

All i have to do, is pop this sucker off :D



See?



Now its time to take everything apart.







Oh, it looks so very empty right now.... poor thing, I think that needs to change soon. no?

So with everything taken out and removed, its time for me to go and clean out the rad.
For this, i used boiling hot tap water and rinsed it out with distilled





....

alright, enough work on the dismantling, time for me to get some food in me.



but someone smells the food.... oh these big cats can smell it from miles away.



I think he wants some of that applewood smoked salmon.



Yup!!!! sneaky cat!



Thats my food!!! get your own!





Alright back to eating......

where was i?


oh yea but wait!!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzap.
My camera goes dead.

Then it comes back alive, skipping the entire rebuild v1.1.... i need a new camera.
i still have quite a few things i want to do to this build, so dont you worry, there will be more pics of the build process when i get new fittings, maybe a new GPU :D


but here are a few shots to wet your appetitite :D

So

A quick update. I just took it outside to do a little bit of a photo-shoot.

Please keep in mind that this is not completed. i still need to come up with a way to mount my drives in the drivebays, the rad area needs work, and new fittings and either a new gpu or gpu block are coming at some point.
So please, enjoy :D






































let me know what you think! :D

As well guys, i'd like your input.

I'm thinking of changing my sleeve color scheme. do you think i should change the coolant to the Blue Berry Pastel...


Or:
Change the aqua marine sleeve to feature Nils Vivid Violet and MKII Grey.

I actually used Mayhems Pastel coolants. It uses IDC but is "pre-mixed" in a concentrated formula. You can pick it up at Dazmode :D One container makes 1l of coolant. great stuff.
